About Don

Don Guerra, Owner/Baker of Barrio Bread, is a Community Supported Baker in Tucson, AZ. He is a passionate craft baker who focuses on local grain, ancient sourdough methods of long fermentation and hearth baking to create a truly inspired loaf. A former educator, Don has worked with the University of Arizona, Native Seeds Search and Hayden Flour Mills to teach about bread and the local wheat economy. He is committed to fostering connections within the community and is striving to do something more than just make a delicious loaf of bread. In the realm of this burgeoning local wheat movement, Don is one of the few established bakers devoted to incorporating fresh, local grains into their production. Simply put: he gets it, and we are thrilled Don has agreed to come over to California to share his passion and knowledge with us.
